It's our Community.
It's our Responsibility
To Whom It May Concern: It is an honor and pleasure for me to write this letter of commendation on behalf of Mr. Friedman and his staff—all of whom are the most wonderful, caring, thoughtful, compassionate people one can find. And the meals they deliver to the elderly sick and homebound are outstandingly delicious. Ezras Cholim provides a much needed service to the Jewish Community in the Greater Phoenix area. I live in Sun Lakes, and yet they go of their way to accommodate me whenever I call—and Mr. Friedman is kind enough to call me when he hasn’t heard from me in awhile. I have dealt with Ezras Cholim for just a few months, and it’s been a blessing and a delight. Whoever deals with them will heartily concur—and bless the staff as I do. Best wishes, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
On August 7, 2015 my wife and I were involved in a serious car accident in Scottsdale. My wife was hospitalized at Honor Health, Osborn St. for 3 weeks and I was more fortunate, being released in 4 days. The Bikur Cholim led by Yecheskiel Friedman came to our rescue arranging wonderful housing for me with families in both Scottsdale and Phoenix. In addition, I was provided with comfortable personalized and timely transportation to an from the hospital almost on demand...And I can't forget the amazing home cooked Shabbos meals for both of us! The efforts of the Ezras Cholim of Phoenix made the challenging time for both of us much easier to deal with. We will always be grateful.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I cannot say enough about Ezras Cholim! I was extremely hesitant to call, because I did not want to be a bother to the community. However, I promised my doctor that I would get help, and so I had to follow through. I also wanted to remain anonymous, and thought who would want to help someone they don't know? But Ezras Cholim was there. From the moment I called, Yecheskel was telling me that they would be SO happy to help, and not to feel bad that I need help. By the time I called, I had been off my feet for about a month, and really needed the help as soon as possible. I called on a Thursday. The NEXT DAY Yecheskel brought the entire Shabbos for my family, along with much needed household help. I continued to receive meals for THREE weeks, and Ezras Cholim STILL brings food every Shabbos and often during the week too! This is extremely helpful, as I am starting to get back to my feet, but I am not supposed to do much heavy lifting (pots and pans with food are too heavy for me) ...
Yecheskel follows up with me frequently to see what our needs are. Thank G-d, I am getting back to my feet. But when I was completely in bed, Ezras Cholim sent my baby to daycare, and took care of household help twice a week! I cannot even imagine where my family would be now without Ezras Cholim. The people of Ezras Cholim are amazing. I am a complete stranger, yet they are happy to help keep our family afloat during this very difficult time. I am looking forward to the day (hopefully soon) when I will be back on my feet completely, and can cook and provide delicious meals for Ezras Cholim, as they have done for my family.Thank you so much! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
